Vacon Drives exhibiting at The Energy Event 2010

On the Vacon stand, the company will be focusing on practical, convenient and affordable ways of applying the latest AC variable speed drive technology to save energy and cut carbon emissions. Throughout the event, the Vacon’s experts will be available to explain just how much energy can be saved in real life situations, to discuss specific applications, and to demonstrate the new Vacon 100 HVAC drive, which has been developed from the ground up with energy efficiency in mind.

Available with power ratings from 1.1 kW up to 160 kW the Vacon 100 HVAC drive incorporates a range of functions specifically designed to aid energy saving, including a realtime clock, a kWh energy monitor and a sleep option to eliminate downtime energy usage. The drives also feature two integral PID loops and a multi-pump control facility. Integration with building management systems is made easy by the provision of RS485 and Ethernet interfaces that are Modbus and BACnet compatible. And to ensure that smoke exhaust fans function, the Vacon 100 HVAC overrides the self-protection and motor protection diagnostics with it’s in built fire mode software.
